Saxophonist Paula Atherton w/special guest Trumpeter Cindy Bradley

Sunday, July 17, 6 PM

King Center - Studio Theatre

Saxophonist, flutist Paula Atherton has enjoyed a long and varied career in contemporary and mainstream jazz. Her acumen on her instruments are poised and adept. Her full-length album Can You Feel It has already begun to garner real accolades with her single also titled "Can You Feel It," landing a #1 hit, three weeks in a row on Billboard. What is even more cementing about this accolade is she also landed #1 slots on Mediabase and #1 on the Smooth Jazz Network.

Since being signed to the Trippin' N' Rhythm record label in 2009, Cindy Bradley has blossomed into a powerful and charismatic presence at radio and on the contemporary jazz festival circuit, with 8 #1 Billboard singles along the way. Cindy has performed everywhere from the Seabreeze Jazz Festival, to the Dubai Jazz Fest. She won Best New Artist at the American Smooth Jazz Awards, Brass Player of the Year and Best New Artist at the Contemporary Jazz Awards, and was named Debut Artist of the Year by the Catalina Island Jazz Trax Festival and Smooth Jazz News.

Spyro Gyra

Sunday, October 2, 7:30 PM

King Center - Studio Theatre

October 2019 witnessed the release of Spyro Gyra's first album of new material in six years. Once again, they have upset expectations by recording an album of all cover songs. In a nod to drawing heavily from their earlier pop and rock influences, Vinyl Tap. It's going to upset some expectations of a collection of romantic favorites by a contemporary jazz artist. Be prepared for some surprises, like a Latin big band approach to Cream's "Sunshine of Your Love". Or maybe a stunning arrangement of Blind Faith's "Can't Find My Way Home". Or maybe a slowed down, bluesy version of Squeeze's "Tempted" might be more your style. These are going to be some of the highlights of the Vinyl Tap tour.

"My hope is that our music has the same effect on the audience that it does on me," says group leader Jay Beckenstein. "I've always felt that music, and particularly instrumental music, has this non-literal quality that lets people travel to a place where there are no words. Whether it's touching their emotions or connecting them to something that reminds them of something much bigger than themselves, there's this beauty in music that's not connected to sentences. It's very transportive. I would hope that when people hear our music or come to see us, they're able to share that with us."

Acoustic Alchemy

Saturday, October 8, 7:30 PM

King Center - Studio Theatre

For over three decades the band has been at the forefront of contemporary jazz, even if the band's signature eclectic mix of styles has meant they have never comfortably fit snugly into any one genre; "We've had a lot of labels over the years, at the start there were all these names flying around like New Adult Contemporary, New Age music, and then it became Smooth Jazz, but we've never really thought about ourselves as being in any one particular genre. "We just make music we like." Says Greg Carmichael, "At the core it's always been about one simple concept: the sound of the nylon and steel guitars working together, but that leaves a lot of scope for exploring all sorts of musical ideas."

The band has changed a lot over the years, different personnel, different eras, different influences, but we always somehow make it sound like Acoustic Alchemy. I think every band tries to do that, to make something that's new and interesting, but the fans still hear it and go, that's them!
